It was 3 articles from 1974 that supported that GT was not a spinoff. One in the TV guide and two in Ebony Magazine. BUt the article that no one seems to want is the one that CONFIRMS GT IS NOT A SPINOFF. I still have copies if you want one.

Good Times (1974-1979)
Maude (1972-1978)
Type: Spin Off
Group: 1



Good Times spun off the character of Maude's maid Florida Evans into her own series. It was the story of a struggling black family living in the projects.

Florida was married to James Evans. They had three children. J.J. was the oldest. Played by Jimmy Walker he became a cultural icon and his constant shout of "Dynomite!" became a national catch phrase. J.J. had art skills but was constantly getting in with a bad crowd. Second oldest was daughter Thelma, who J.J. always traded insults with. The youngest was son Michael who was extremely smart. Also in the original cast was next door neighbor Willona Woods (all shows need wacky neighbors).

As the show went on, the family lost its father when James was killed off. Then in 1977, actress Esther Rolle who played mother Florida Evans also left the show. Rolle did not like the image J.J.'s character was sending out and thought he was a bad role model for young blacks watching the show. When sufficeint chages were not made, she left.

This left a family show with no parents. Willona stepped up to watch after the kids. She had not until now seemed the parental type and so she was given an adopted daughter, Penny, played by Janet Jackson to help show her as a capable mothering type.

The character of Florida did return for the final season once she was promised J.J.'s character would be improved.

As an aside I love family shows where the parents disappear. Its so awkward trying to having a family show and get around the fact there are no parents.

The website that you copied this from is the crossover site. I already had a conversation with him about Good Times and He will be removing it soon. Once again Brian, NICE TRY.

Lightbulb 'All in the Family', 'Maude' & 'Good Times'

Brian's right. Good Times (1974-79) did spinoff from Maude (1972-79) and I like to repeat that Maude was a spinoff of All in the Family (1971-79).

Maude first appeared on All in the Family in 1971 and a second time in 1972 in the episode titled Maude, and Florida first appeared in the sitcom Maude from 1972 to '74 to eventually ending up on Good Times.

I have moved past the topic of Good Times not being a spinoff because i proved my point with several articles. This post is about Out of the Blue not being a spinoff of Happy Days. Happy Days only had 3 spinoffs not 4.

I was confused how Out of the Blue was related to Happy Days.

The character on Out Of the Blue, "Random" made an guest apperance on Happy Days two weeks after OOTB made it's debut on ABC. OOTB also crossovered with Mork and Mindy.
